Seed Starting Date Calculator

Below is a seed starting date calculator from Johnny’s Seeds. I downloaded it from the interactive tools section on their home page. I put the date of our spring frost-free date (May 15 in the Santa Fe area) and it automatically put in all the dates from when to start seeds inside to when we can safely put the plants out in our gardens. I just copied the vegetable section here for you to see but it also has many flower planting dates as well-it was just too big to capture it all. If you live in another area or want to capture the flower information as well, then be sure to go to the interactive tool section at Johnny’s to get your own. But here it is for those of you who live in Santa Fe, NM for all the vegetables they list. If you click on the image it will show up clearer and you can print it.

    Calendars like this can be helpful when you live in a very “temperate” climate. Many gardeners know their climate and often go by soil temperature and the amount of time they can estimate that they have between when they plant and when they are forced to harvest – because of adverse conditions. My climate rarely sees daytime temperatures between 70 and 90 degrees, which makes it virtually impossible to grow some perennials, tomatoes and herbs out in the open.


  3. Great information. Lucky me I came across your website by accident (stumbleupon).

    I’ve book-marked it for later!
